Y attention was firft drawn to the hiftory of my own family at an 
interview with the Rev. Edward Hawkins, D.D., the Venerable 
Provoft of Oriel College in Oxford, on 28th February, 1863. 
He afked me on that occafion what relationfhip I bore to Thomas 
Mayo, M.D., who, like his father, John Mayo, M.D., had been 
a Fellow of that Houfe. I was unable at the time to give more 
than the vague reply that a relationfhip exifted, though I could not ftate the precife 
degree, but I then refolved to put myfelf in a pofition to anfwer in time to come any 
queftions of a fimilar character which might arife. I found ready to my hand a 
quantity of valuable material for ■ a genealogy, which had been collected fome years 
before by my mother, whofe thoughts had been turned in that direction by inquiries 
from perfons of the family name in the United States. Into her labours I then 
entered, and by flow degrees, and by employing intervals of leifure which from time 
to time occurred, I have collected the further material, of which, together with that 
previoufly at my command, the prefent memoirs are compofed. 

The plan I have here adopted has been to point out in an introductory chapter 
thofe families of the name of Mayo which I have met with in my inquiries, as a guide 
to others who may follow me in the fame field of genealogical refearch, prefaced by 
fome remarks upon the name and arms, and then to give an account of the Elton 
family of Hazle in the parifh of Ledbury, Herefordfhire, from which four branches 
of my own family are defcended, and thus claim kindred with John Elton alias 
Baker, Canon of Sarum, the founder of the Elton Fellowfliip at Brafenofe College 
in Oxford. In the fucceeding chapters I have given, in the form of a narrative, the 
hiftory of my own family, concluding with fliort notices of fome other families allied 
to it by marriage, the pedigrees of which, for the moft part, have not been publifhed 
hitherto. The folding pedigree exhibits the Elton and Mayo families in a convenient 
form for reference, and traces a defcent from Charles the Great. Anderfon's " Royal

The Origin and Local Distribution of the Name of Mayo, with some 
General Notes on Persons and Families that have borne it. 

HE name of Mayo is found occurring in various parts of the The name 
world, and under widely different circumftances. It has been ° ayo 
appropriated to an Irifh. town and county, to an ifland of the 
Cape de Verde group, to an anaefthetic compound of hemp in ufe 
among the Chinefe, to a game at which Lord Strafford played 
" excellently well," to a dandy frequenting the bull-fights, and to 
the Grand Vizier of the King of Dahomey. Regarded, however, as an Englifh family 
name, it is moft frequently met with in the fouth and weft of this ifland, and few 
parifh regifters in the counties of Hereford, Gloucefter, Wilts, and Dorfet, can be 
opened without prefenting us with examples. It is fpelt in many ways, varying from 
the extended form of Mayhowe to that of Mao, and often, as it will prefently appear, 
clipped down and reduced to May by the lofs of its concluding fyllable. One 
leffon, however, is taught by this variety and diverfity, viz., the identity of Mayhew is identical 
and Mayo, 1 and from this consideration a ray of light is thrown upon the derivation Mayhew, 
of the name. 

The common fuppofition that the name takes its origin from the Irifh town muft 
at once be laid afide. And, indeed, the name appears to be as rare in Ireland as it is 
common in England, for, to take a fingle illuftration, while thirty-four 2 perfons of 

1 Compare the name Walthew and its variant Waltho. (" Herald and Genealogift," 1 864,

2 Of thefe thirty-four Oxford graduates, twenty-five are accounted for in the fucceeding chapters 
as defcendants of John Mayo, of Devizes, Wilts.

the name of Mayo, and eight or more of Mayow, graduated at Oxford between 1659 
and 1868, no perfon fo called is to be found among the graduates of Dublin from 
1 59 1 to the prefent day. 

John D'Alton, at page 159 of his " Illuftrations Hiftoric and Genealogical of King 
James II/s Army Lift," commenting on the name of George Mayo, a Lieutenant in 
Sarsfield's Regiment of Horfe, ftates that " this furname does not occur again in the 
Lift, nor does it appear in the roll of outlawries either of 1641 or 1671. Some 
' Meaghs ' and ' Moyaghs ' do appear therein. The name of Mayowe is in the 
Chancery Rolls as in Kerry in the fourteenth century ; that of Mayhew alfo occurs in 
Irilh Records of about the fame period; and in a Roll of afleflment of fines laid 
upon Sheriffs, Mayors, Senefchalls, &c, of record in the Chief Remembrancer's 
Office here (Dublin), is one of Geoffrey Mayhoo in 1428." 

But to return to England, an early occurrence of the name, and in its extended 
form, is found in Glover's Roll of Arms, fuppofed by Sir Harris Nicolas to date from 
between 1245 and 1250. Herbert le Fitz Mayhewe (No. 78) is there mentioned as 
bearing " pty dazur & de goulz oue trois leonfeaux rampants d'or ; " and Woodward 
in his " Hiftory of Wales," page 415, narrates that according to the old copy of 
S. David's annals the Welfh flew Sir Herbert Fitz-Mahu, apparently in 1246, near 
the caftle of Morgan Cam. The fame Roll of Arms gives the clue to the origin of 
the name. On three occafions Mahewe is ufed as a Chriftian name ; in the cafe of 
Mahewe de Lovayne (No. 116), Maheu de Columbers (No. 191), and Maheu de 
Redmain (No. 218). There can be little doubt that it is here a foftened form of 
Matthew. Bardfley, in his " Englifh Surnames," mentions two other inftances, — Adam 
fil. Maheu from the Hundred Rolls, and Mayeu de Bafingbourne from the Parlia- 
mentary Writs, — and takes the fame view of its origin. Lower, in his" Patronymica 
Britannica," page 219, under the name Matthew ftates that "This baptifmal 
name introduced here at the Conqueft has not only become a furname but the parent 
of many others ; to wit, Mathew, Matthews, Matthewfon, Mathie, Mathiefon, 
Matfon, Mayhew, Mayo, Matts, Matty, Maddy, Madifon." Under Mayow, 
Mayhew, page 221, he fays again, " Probably one of the many modifications of 
Matthew." 1 

It has already been ftated that the name has fuffered a ftill further reduction by 
the lofs of its final fyllable, and inftances may be given where an uncertainty has 
appeared to exift as to the form of fpelling to be adopted. For example : Walter 
Mayo vel Meye admiffus in artibus 26 January, 151 1 (Gough MS. 7. Bod: Lib:);

of the name of Mayo. 3 

the will of Robert Mayo of Broughton Gifford, gent., 16 November, 1572, in the 
Prerogative Court, though his family name was ufually written May, as in the Wilt- 
fhire Vifitations; the will of Henry Mayo alias May of Kellways, Wilts, 1661, 
proved in the Court of the Archdeacon of Wilts ; and the will of Maria Florentia 
Mayo, proved P. C. C. 12 April, 1677, where the name occurs fometimes as May, 
and at other times as Mayo. Here too the teftimony of armorial bearings can be 
adduced, for while " Sable a chevron between three rofes argent a chief or " is 
afcribed to Mayo, the fame bearings with variations in tincture only are afcribed to 
May of Charterhoufe, Somerfet (from Wiltlhire), May of Exeter and others. 
Curioufly enough a family in North Carolina has changed its name back from May 
to Mayo within the laft fixty years. 1 

If it be granted that the genefis of the name has here been correctly given, and 
that it belongs to that wide clafs of names derived from Chriftian names, it will 
readily be underftood that many families of the fame name may be looked for, which 
are quite diftinct from each other in their origin, and that a common appellation is 
here no indication of a common anceftry ; and the reader will fee that this fact, com- 
bined with the great diverfity of fpelling, varying from Mayhew to May, has ren- 
dered the tracing of an early pedigree no eafy matter, and he is requefted to pardon 
any fhortcomings on this fcore. 

It may be well to point out the habitat of fome few Mayo families. To begin Famiiie 
with Cornwall. Pedigrees of Mayhowe of Loftwithiel, and of Mayow of Looe, 
Bray, and Morval, are given in the Vifitations ; from the latter defcends in the female feated in 
line the prefent family of Wynell-Mayow. Here alfo belonged John Mayow, Fellow 
of All Souls College, the diftinguifhed Oxford philofopher of the feventeenth century, 
and that Mayow of Clevyan in S. Columb Major, who was hanged on a tavern fign- 
poft as a rebel againft the injunctions of Edward VI. concerning religion. Mayow's 
wife delayed afking for his releafe till too late, by reafon of her adorning herfelf with 
a French Hood! (Gilbert's " Hift. of Cornwall," vol. ii., page 198). 

Dorset contains many perfons of the name, and a fhort pedigree is given in one Dorfet, 
of the Vifitations, but here it is now chiefly confined to the yeomanry of the county. 
A few of its poflefTors have entered holy orders. 

The name is common in Gloucestershire, as at Kempley in the north, at Gioucefter- 
Tetbury and at Charfield in the fouth of the county. From Francis Mayo of Char- Ire ' 
field fprang the family feated at Bayford, Herts, which gave a High Sheriff" to that 
county in 1668. 

Herefordshire, again, is well fupplied with this family name. To take a fingle Hereford- 
inftance, the regifters of Much Marcle are embarraffingly full of it. Hence was ire '

This flight fketch may be fufficient to indicate fome of the localities where 
and wnt- families of Mayo are now or were formerly to be found. Wiltshire ftill remains, 
referved to the laft as particularly interefting to thofe who are concerned with the 
contents of this volume. More than one family of the name are here found. 
Mayow of Dinton figures in the Vifitations of 1565 and 1623, and from this fource 
probably fprang Thomas Mayhew who emigrated to Bofton from Salifbury between 
1630-40, and whofe defendants are numerous in New England. Berwick S. John 
had alfo for fome generations a family of the fame name. Poulfhot was the home 
of another family which alfo has given its offspring to the New World, and from 
William Mayo who emigrated about 1720 has arifen one of the moft influential 
families of Virginia. It may be remarked that in the Poulfhot Regifter the name is 
written as May previous to 1635, as May and Mayo indifcriminately between 1635 
and 1 640, and as Mayo after the year laft named. At Chippenham refided Jenkin 
Maye, who married a daughter of Sir Hugh Spencer, and was the anceftor of May of 

SCharterhoufe, Somerfet, bearing " Sable, a chevron or between three

This introductory chapter may be brought to a conclufion with a reference to a 
few remarkable perfons who have borne this family name, but who are not introduced 
in the fucceeding pages.

Article " Beard," vol. iv., page 528. He was born in 1500 and died in 1559. 

Colonel Christopher Mayo had warrant 14th July, 1652, to raife 3,000 Col. 
foot in Ireland, out of fuch natives as had been in active arms againft the Parliament, M " op ei 
and tranfmit them for fervice of the King of Spain to Bilboa and St. Sebaftian and 
other parts of Spain equally diftant from England. The " Howard Papers," at page 
80, relate a defperate encounter he had in London with the Portuguefe, 21ft 
November, 1653, when he received feven dangerous wounds, and had twelve men 
on him at once, and yet drew his fword and fought with them as long as he was 
able to hold fword in hand. 

John Mayo, Esq., died 28th January, 1735, aged 78, "a great favourite with JohnMayo, 
King James II., who fettled on him for life £800 per annum, with leave to jointure vounte/*"

before he died." — Gentleman's Magazine, vol. v., page 50. 


Elton of Hazle in the Parish of Ledbury in the County of Hereford, 
with Descendants in the Hall, Watts, and Prichard Families, 
and an Account of the Elton Foundation at Brasenose College, 

the Elton 




HE family of Elton, of which an account is given in the following 
pages, was long fettled in the county of Hereford, and was feated 
at Hazle in the parifh of Ledbury, in the latter part of the fix- 
teenth century. The Manor of Hazle had previoufly been held 
of the church of Hereford by the Walwyns for nearly 200 years. 
Thomas Walwyn held it at his death in 1531, and probably his 
fon Sir Richard Walwyn, who died in 1578, was alfo owner of the leafe. The 
Manor of Ledbury pafled into the hands of the Crown in 1559, and Anthony Elton 
was apparently the firft of his family to become pofTefTed of the eftate. His defen- 
dants continued to hold it for a confiderable period, until it was alienated in 1720 
to Jacob Tonfon, the noted London publifher. The Manor Houfe ftill exifts, and 
though much altered, and converted into a farm refidence, retains the oak wain- 
fcoting in the principal room, with the Elton arms and creft above the fireplace, and 
a ftaircafe of oak with carved wicket-gate and baluftrade. 

But the earlier home of the family was at Elton in the county of Chefter, a 
fcion of which houfe entered Herefordfhire, probably under the aufpices of Bifhop 

In Ormerod's Hiftory of that county, vol. ii., page 22, it is ftated that Thomas 
de Helton was witnefs to a grant of land in Hapsford along with Peter le Roter, 
Lord of Thornton, Ranulph Redtor of Thornton, and others, about the year 1268. 
His fon Thomas flourifhed in the reign of Edward II., whofe fon, another Thomas 
de Helton, died before his father, leaving a daughter, Felicia, coheirefs to her grand- 
father, and married to William de Frodfham, (Inq: 35 Edw. III.). This family 
bore Paly of fix argent and gules, on a bend fable three mullets of the firft.

concerned, and the narrative which follows is bafed upon the Heralds' Vifitations of 
the latter county, continued and greatly extended by extracts from parifh regifters 
and other fources of information ; and much help has been derived from the Phillipps 
MSS. preferred at Belmont Priory, near Hereford. 

The pedigree begins with William Elton of Ledbury, " de- 
fended of Elton of Elton of Chefhire." The arms affigned to his 
family are, " Paly of fix or and gules, on a bend fable three mullets 
of the firft." Creft, " a dexter arm embowed in armour argent 
tied round the arm with a fcarf vert, the gauntlet holding a fcimitar 
proper, pommel and hilt or." 

William Elton married Sybil, daughter of Roger Wilfe of Pit- 
houfe, in the parifh of Dymock, Gloucefterfhire, and had iffue two fons, William and y/\Ke, 
John, whofe names have come down to us. Allufion may be made to another fon, 
in "Letters and Papers Foreign and Domeftic of the reign of Henry VIII.," vol. i., 
page 845, where mention is made of a pardon for Edward Elton alias Baker, late of 
Ledbury, Herefordfhire, alias of Hynxfey Hall in the Univerfity of Oxford, fcholar 
alias clerk, 15th July, 15 14 (Pat: 6 Hen. VIII. p. 2. m. 7.). 

However this may be, one of the fons of William and Sybil Elton was: 

John Elton alias Baker, LL.D. This ecclefiaftic was prefented in 15 10 to the and has 
Rectory of Marlborough S. Peter, Wilts, by Edmund Audeley, Bifhop of Sarum, Elton alia" 
and in the next year, by the fame prelate, to the Vicarage of Sherfton, in the fame j^£ of 
county. On 18th June, 151 1, he was " licentiatus ad incipiendum" at Oxford, and Saram > 
5th April, 1 5 12, collated to the Prebend of South Grantham in Salifbury Cathedral. 
The next year he exchanged Marlborough S. Peter for the Wardenfhip of S. Kathe- 
rine's Hofpital, Ledbury, and on 24th October, 15 14, was made Prebendary of 
North Grantham in Salifbury Cathedral, of which he was a Canon Residentiary. 
The year 15 14 faw him further preferred to the church of Myldenhall, Wilts, by 
Walter Hungerford, Knight. 

In 1 5 1 5 he refigned the Vicarage of Sherfton, and on 9th May was made Pre- 
bendary of Withington Parva in Hereford Cathedral. In 15 17 he was alfo made 
Rector of the portion of Netherhall in the Church of Ledbury. "30 Mart. 15 17.

Eccl: Ledbury, per refig: Mri. Henric' Horneby s.t.p. Penfio annua x librar. folut.

In 1526 he was prefented to the Vicarage of Cryckelade, Wilts, by the Dean 
and Chapter of Sarum, and a note in the Bifhop's regifter ftates, " Hie notatur de 
unione Ecclas de Myldenhall cum Eccl. Weleford." In 1529 he was made Rector 
of Childrey, Berks, and in 1534 was prefented to the Vicarage of Yetminfter, Dorfet. 

On 13th Auguft, 1539, he was collated to the Chancellorfhip of Hereford 
Cathedral, and on the 22nd of the fame month to the Prebend of Grimftone in Salif-

bury Cathedral, having refigned the Prebend of North Grantham. According to 
the Phillipps MSS. he was collated to the Archdeaconry of Hereford, 13th Auguft, 
1543, but this Statement appears to be erroneous. It would alfo feem that he was 
fometime Rector of Welford, Berks, and perhaps Vicar of Bifhops Norton, Lincoln. 
He died in 1547, and the Prebend of Grimftone, vacant by his death, was filled up on 
the 24th of Auguft of that year. 

The beft known act of his life was the foundation of a Fellowship at Brafenofe 
College, 'in the Univerfity of Oxford. By deed, dated 20th May, 1529, he gave 
lands in Stanlake and Duglington, Oxfordfhire, and in Kemmerton, Gloucefterfhire, 
to the Principal and Scholars of Brafenofe College for the maintenance of one fcholar

Mayo of Bodenham and Hope-under-Dinmore, in the County, and of 
the Parish of S. Peter in the City, of Hereford. 

N the fixteenth century, and early in the feventeenth, Thomas 
Mayo, gentleman, was living in the parifh of Bodenham in 
Herefordfhire, where he died 22nd January, 1625. His monu- 
ment was feen and the infcription copied by Thomas Dingley in 
the reign of Charles II., and a fketch of it may be found in his 
" Hiftory from Marble," page 236, publifhed for the Camden 
Society in 1866. Under an "I.H.S." the following words are infcribed — 

" Here lyeth the Body of Thomas Mayo, Gent., and Catherine his wife. He 
deceafed the XXII January An. D. MDCXXV." 

The writer of this memoir vifited the Church of Bodenham, 28th June, 1877, 
and found that the monument had difappeared. The clerk informed him that it 
was " done away with when the church was renovated, thirty years ago." Thomas 
Mayo's will was proved in the Confiftory Court of Hereford, and is calendared in 
the Index in 1625 as number 267, but has been miflaid or deftroyed. 

He was fucceeded at Bodenham by his fon Thomas Mayo. Catherine his wife 
long furvived him, and was buried at Bodenham, 19th September, 1653, and 
adminiftration of her eftate was granted to Humphrey Mayo, her grandfon, 19th 
May, 1665, at Hereford. 

Both Catherine Mayo and her fon suffered during the Civil Wars for their 
loyalty to the royal caufe. The interefting particulars here given are extracted

In the petition of Thomas Goodier of Lentoll Starks, an infant, Thomas Mayo 
of Bodenham appears as his next of kin and guardian. 

The Regifter of Bodenham mentions thefe children of Thomas Mayo : — " Eliza-

1635; Mary, another daughter, 9th January, 1636-7; Thomas, their fon, 6th Sep-

25th January, 1640-1. 

In the Bodenham pariih account books we have Mr. Mayoe paying a rate of 
VIS. id. in 1653. In 1656, Thomas Mayoe, gent., pays 19^. 4^/. In 1667, 
Hum. Mayo, gent., pays lis. 6d. " Humph. Mayo's" name appears as Church-

John Mayo, of Devizes, in the County of Wilts, and the Descendants 
of his Eldest Son, John Mayo, Vicar of Avebury. 

ITH the prefent chapter commences an account of the defen- 
dants of John Mayo, who was living in the parifh of S. John 
Baptift, in Devizes, Wilts, in the reigns of Charles II., James II., 
and William III., being the firft of his family to fettle in that 

He married, 25th April, 1671, at S. Mary's, Devizes, 
Joane, fecond daughter of William Hayes the elder, gentleman, of that parifh, and 
Katherine his wife, one of the Chief Burgefles of Devizes in 1654. The entry in 
the regifter runs, "John Maio & Joan Hayes were married the 25th day of Aprill 
1 67 1." William Hayes was buried there 8th February, 1683-4, and Katherine 
Hayes, 29th January, 1685-6, but their daughter Joane was buried at S. John's, 
27th December, 17 19, where fhe had received baptifm 12th March 1646-7, having 
for many years furvived her hufband, who was buried at the latter church 4th Sep- 
tember, 1692. It is probable that John Mayo was a fcion of the family of which 
an account has been given in the preceding chapter. His fon Charles went to 
Hereford at an early age, and fettled in the parifh in which refided William Mayo, 
a few years later Member of Parliament for that city, and at the age of twenty-four 
married the daughter of one of the principal citizens ; and it may be noted that 
John Mayo calls his third fon Humphrey, a name which has already been feen to 
have been in favour with the Herefordfhire family. A tradition of kinftup with 
Richard Mayo, Bifhop of Hereford, has prevailed among the defcendants of John 

Ten children were the ifTue of the marriage of John Mayo with Joane Hayes. 

I. John, baptifed 30th Auguft, 1673.

baptifed 1 8th March, 1706-7, and buried 18th May, 1708 ; Robert, baptifed 29th

III. Humphrey, baptifed 3rd January, 1676-7. 

IV. Jane, baptifed 3rd December, 1678. She died 4th November, 175 1, 
having been married to Jacob Maynard at S. Mary's, Devizes, 19th December, 
1703, by whom fhe was the mother of three children, Jane, baptifed 18th October, 
1705; James, baptifed 20th October, 1707, and died 4th November, 1786, aged 
feventy-nine ; and Mayo, baptifed 2nd Auguft, 1 7 1 o, and buried 6th January, 1 7 1 1 - 1 2. 
Jacob Maynard had previoufly married at S. John's Church, 10th April, 1702, Mary 
Hillier, who was buried there 21ft July, 1703. He was himfelf buried 28th July, 

In the churchyard of S. John's Church, a little to the north of the weft door, is 
a flat ftone with the infcription, " Jane Maynard, daughter of John Mayo and Joan 
his wife, died 4th of November 1 7 5 1 , aged 73 years." Some older monuments 
bearing the name of Mayo are fpoken of, but they cannot now be difcovered. 

V. Henry, baptifed 10th October, 1680, and buried 20th July, 1683. 

VI. Charles, baptifed 18th November, 1682, and buried 28th February, 1682-3. 
VII. "Henry, baptifed 15th April, 1684, and buried 15th February, 1684-5. 

VIII. Charles, baptifed 21 ft March, 1685-6. 

IX. Henry, baptifed 2nd October, 1688. 

X. James, baptifed 17th Auguft, 1691. In this cafe the entry runs, "James, 
fon of Jo. May \_fic\ and Joane his wife." 

To this point, unlefs where otherwife ftated, the dates of baptifm, marriage, and 
burial are taken from the regifter of S. John Baptift, Devizes. 

Attention will henceforth be directed to the defcendants of two of thefe ten 
children of John Mayo and Joane (nee Hayes), viz., to John (I.) and Charles (VIII.). 
John Mayo, their eldeft fon, baptifed, as we have feen, 30th Auguft, 1673, 
johnMayo, matriculated at Oxford, 16th October, 1695, from Hart Hall, but by an error in the 
his eideft regifter he is then ftated to be 18 years of age. Some interval elapfed between his 
cated at leaving the Univerfity and receiving holy orders, as he was not ordained until the 
year 1704, when on the 24th of September he was admitted to the Diaconate in 
Salifbury Cathedral by Bifhop Burnet, and licenfed to the curacy of All Cannings. 
In the regifter of ordinations, he is defcribed as " Civilifta," that is, Civilian, or Stu- 
dent of Civil Law. He was ordained Prieft 3rd June, 1705, by the fame prelate, and 
licenfed to Calne. 
becomes O n ' 2tn November, 17 12, he was inftituted to the Vicarage of Avebury, Wilts 

vicar of (g James), on the prefentation of the Queen, void by the death of John White, the 
laft incumbent, which living he held until 1746, when he refigned, and his fecond

bears the infcription, " John Rofe, James Pope, churchwardens. Richard Phelps,

Two letters only from the pen of John Mayo are known to be in exigence. 
They are in the porTernon of Mr. Thomas Kemm, the Manor Houfe, Avebury, and 


are dated refpectively 25th March and 25th May, 1720. One of them is here

It may be noted that the parifh regifter fhows that nine deaths occurred in May, 
1720, and the number of burials in that year was much above the 
average. Both thefe letters are fealed with a coat of arms, " Argent, 
on a chevron fable between three rofes a lily," the coat that is afligned 
to Richard Mayo, Bifhop of Hereford. 

John Mayo married Mary, daughter of — Hayward, a medical man at Calne, who 
furvived him and was buried there 13th Auguft, 1755. He himfelf had been buried

For fuel there's fufficient wood, 

And, God be thanked, the cellar's good. 

But not the joys that quiet yields, 

Nor garden, houfe, nor fruitful fields, 

Could Charles content, he loathed his home, 

He loved to ramble, loved to roam. 

He flies through England, Scotland, Wales, 

Acrofs the Dover Streights he fails, 

Of travelled youths becomes the flow'r, 

And with Squire Awdry makes the tour, 

Till tired at laft he home returns, 

His coach he fells, his journal burns. 

Now fix'd, content, he taps his barrel, 

Exhorts his neighbours not to quarrel ; 

With tythes his barns replete he fees, 

And chuckles o'er his furplice fees ; 

Studies to find out latent dues, 

And regulates the ftate of pews, 

Rides a dun mare with purple houfing 

To lhare the monthly club's caroufing ; 

Sends prefents of his choiceit fruit, 

And prunes himfelf each faplefs fhoot ; 

Plants colliflow'rs, and boafts to rear 

The earlieft melons of the year ; 

Builds in his copfe a fav'rite bench, 

And ftores his pond with carp and tench. 

But what are all the joys of life 
Without the firft, — a loving wife ? 
Or what's a table richly spread 
Without a woman at its head ? 
Charles then muft wed, ere 'tis too late ; 
He looks around to find a mate ; 
And (his difcernment all muft own) 
Picks out a coufin of his own, 
Not over weighty in the purfe 
(But many doctors have done worfe), 
And, though Ihe boail no charms divine, 
Yet Ihe can carve, and make birch wine. 
How happy now the hours glide 
Round lovefick Charles's fire-fide ! 
He muft, 'tis true, remain at home, 
But from her could he wifh to roam ? 

Alas ! too foon his thoughtlcfs brcaft 
By cares domeftic is oppreft ; 
And a third butcher's bill and brewing 
Threaten inevitable ruin ; 
For children frefti expenfes get, 
And Charley now for fchool is fit.

" Why did I fell my quiet life," 
He cries, " for family and wife ? 
Return, ye days, when endlefs pleafure 
I found in reading or in leifure ! 
No cares were then for forward peas 
A yearly-longing wife to pleafe ; 
My thoughts no Chrift'ning dinner croft, 
No children cried for butter'd toaft, 
And every night I went to bed 
No care nor forrow in my head." 

Charles Mayo was at this time engaged to his coufin Mercy- Beata Mayo, but 
he never married. (See chapter vii.)

Hofpital, became, on the 5th April, 181 1, a member of the Royal College of Surgeons,

It is added in a memoir in the " Medical Times and Gazette," December, 1 876, 
that " of courfe this could not be expected to be altogether pleafing to the exifting 
functionaries, who for a time gave him, as he thought, no cordial co-operation. The 
following letter from Mr. Abernethy, dated Aug. 1 8 1 2, at the time when Charles Mayo 

John Mayo of Devizes. 59 

was preparing for his firft operation of lithotomy, will tell its own tale as to the ftate 
of feeling at the time. It will alfo mow how thoroughly Abernethy was prepared to 
back his old pupil." 

" My dear Sir, — If the governors of any hofpital entrufted me with the care Letter from 


of patients, I would take care to do my duty to the beft of my ability. I would 
not bleed and purge a patient repeatedly, prior to an operation for lithotomy to the 
extent you defcribe, at the fuggeftion of any man, if it did not appear to me proper. 
There is but one general rule for a man's conduct : Do as you would be done unto. 
I would not defer the operation beyond that time when it feemed moft conducive to 
the patient's welfare to perform it. You know I ufe a gorget, which cuts as well as 
any knife I ever tried, and has the advantage of being a conductor for the forceps. 
If I ufe a knife it mould be fuch a one as Mr. Cooper ufes. I know not what to 
advife you to do. You reprefent your patient as much reduced, and if the fubject 
were unfavourable for an operation, I would rather fend him to a London Hofpital 
than run the rifle of his dying after an operation, however well you might perform 
it. This is the beginning of my lectures. I have fcarcely time to write. Had it 
happened at any other feafon I would have gone to Winchefter. 

" Yours moft fincerely, 

"J. Abernethy." 

" The operation was performed and the patient recovered. From this time for- 
ward, up to the year 1870, Charles Mayo's life was one of the bufieft profeffional 
work. He gained considerable reputation as a lithotomift, which was brought to a charies 
climax by his fuccefsful extraction of one of the largeft ftones on record, weighing ^rJa 
more than fourteen ounces, in December, 18 18. As a lithotomift his manner of pro- lithotomift, 
ceeding and inftruments were bold and fimple, in imitation of Chefelden. He per- 
formed feveral operations for axillary and other aneurifms, fome of which were made 
known through the" Medical and Chirurgical TranfacTions," a cafe of complete tranf- 
pofition of the vifcera, cafes of deep encyfted tumours in the neck (" Lancet "), and cafes 
of epifpadias. Hernia, in* all its varieties, came under his notice, and the laft entry in 
his cafe-book is one of obdurated hernia, entered in 1873, at the age 84. His expe- 
rience, too, in the obftetric department was very large. He was a thorough lover of and devo- 
profeflional work, allowed nothing to interfere with the difcharge of his duties, and - pro femon. 
fhowed a genuine kindnefs to all who were in real diftrefs or trouble. He was a man 
of exuberant health and activity, up early and late, and never feeming to feel hunger or 
fatigue, — fo, at leaft, fome of his pupils ufed to think when he fummoned them to 
make poft-mortem examinations, drefs compound fractures, and do other unfavoury 
work at the hofpital before breakfaft. He had many pupils, — in fact, for many years 
Winchefter was quite equal to one of the fmaller London hofpitals in the extent of 
its practice and means of profeftional education. His old pupils became lifelong

friends, and foon forgot the cauftic epithets with which their matter irritated their 
felf-efteem, efpecially when they thought they had done fomething clever. They 
forgot the rough furface, and valued the fterling metal underneath. The practice of 
the hofpital in Charles Mayo's hands was homely, but effective. It would be diffi- 
cult anywhere, with any apparatus, to turn out better fet fractures than Mayo turned 
out with fimple wooden fplints." 

On nth December, 1843, he was made Honorary Fellow of the Royal College 
of Surgeons. He was on three occafions Mayor of Winchefter, in 1840, 1845, and 
1852. In 1 8 5 1 the citizens gave him a grand entertainment in honour of the fortieth 
anniverfary of his hofpital appointment. He could never believe that he was growing 
old, and difliked the honour done him by removing him from the active to the con- 
fulting ftaff of the hofpital in 1870, when in his 83rd year. In 1874 he became 
blind, but found occupation and folace in daily attendance at the cathedral fervice. 
He died 27th November, 1876, having nearly completed his 88th year, and was 
buried on the ift of December. The former part of the funeral fervice was chorally 
rendered in the cathedral, and the body fubfequently interred in the cemetery. He 
married 1 ith February, 1836, at S. Thomas, Winchefter, Jane, daughter of Thomas 
Dennis, of Hazlemere, Surrey, and Overton, Hants, Clerk in Holy Orders. 1 

In the fouth aifle of the cathedral is a monument with this infcription: — "M.S.

aged 19, and having obtained a third clafs in Claffical Moderations, graduated B.A. college, 
8th December, 1859, anc * M.A. 16th October, 1863. His tafte for archaeology is

Church of Saint Cuthberga, and King's Free Chapel at Wimborne. London, Bell 
and Daldy, i860," pp. vi. and 136. It is illuftrated with anaftatic plates and wood 
engravings, and was publifhed anonymoufly. 

" The book," to quote an obituary notice in the " Medical Times and Gazette," 
October, 1877, " is one which from the fulnefs of detail, from the fkill and perfpi- 
cuity with which the fucceffive flages in the conftruction of an ancient church are 
defcribed, would have done credit to any antiquary or architect. Another example 
of his fcientific taftes may be feen in an invention which he made a few years later 
for propelling fhips, of which he had models made, and for which he took out a 
patent dated 30th July, 1867. He entered warmly upon his profeffional purfuits, 
becoming M.R.C.S. in 1861, and going to Vienna for fome months ftudy. He 
proceeded alfo to Prague, where he ftudied the laryngofcope under Czermak and 
Turck, and before his return to England vifited all the chief hofpitals in Germany, 
and made himfelf complete mafter of the theory and practice of hofpital conftruction. 
On his return he ferved a fhort time as Houfe Surgeon to the RadclifFe Infirmary at

pp. 372-417. He underwent a week's examination by the Surgeon-General's Depart- 
ment, which was effential for taking a ftaff appointment, and then was fortunate 
enough to obtain one of the beft appointments in the fervice, that of taking charge 
of fick and wounded volunteer officers in Wafhington itfelf. During an interval 
when work was lighter than ufual he had the opportunity of vifiting the army of the 
Potomac, under General Hooker, oppofite Frederickfburg ; and foon after his return 
to Wafhington he obtained the pofition of Staff" Surgeon-Major and Medical Infpector 
of the 13th Army Corps, and was ordered to Vickfburg to join Grant's army befieging 
that place. Diarrhoea and malaria, which ravaged the armies on both fides, did not 
fpare the doctors, and Mayo was obliged to refign in order to fave his life. After a 
narrow efcape of being blown up with a fteamer in which he was to have travelled, 
and a vifit to Saratoga Springs, he returned to England in a very dilapidated condi- 
tion in October, 1863. The next few years were fpent partly in Oxford in his con- 
genial purfuits, where he took his B.M. degree, 1 8th December, 1865, and was

" On the breaking out of the Franco- Pruffian war he was not flow in obtaining 
employment on the German fide. He had the good fortune to be fent to Darmftadt, 
where he came under the notice of the Princefs Alice and her fifter the Crown Prin- 
cefsof Pruffia, whofe practical good fenfe and adlive kindnefs were always mentioned by 
him with admiration and gratitude. Here he had ample fcope for his ingenuity and fkill 
in conftruclion. He fuperintended the building of a hofpital which he was proud to be 
permitted to call the c Alice Hofpital,' and piqued himfelf on the abundance of good 
ventilation. He alfo invented fome fick-tranfport carts. With thefe he was fent, 
through the influence of the Crown Princefs, to Lagny, near Paris, in January, 1871. 
From this place he went with his letter to the Crown Prince at Verfailles ; and there 
he had the honour of receiving hofpitality from the men upon whom the eyes of all 
Europe were fixed. In a letter of January 13th, 1871, he fays, — ' 10.30 p.m. I 
have come back from dining with the Crown Prince. There were about eighteen or 
twenty to dinner,' including the Crown Prince, between Bifmarck and Moltke, be- 
fides many generals and colonels, and Generalarzt Wagner. ' During dinner we 

could hear the great guns firing away A telegram was brought in faying 

that Chanzy's army was defeated, with the lofs of 18,000 prifoners and twelve guns. 
This was treated as improbable. Bifmarck faid jocofely, ' probably the correfpon- 
dent has made a miftake, — he meant to fay 1 8,000 guns and twelve prifoners ! ' But 
about an hour afterwards a French telegram was produced, in which precifely the 
fame numbers were given, with the addition that Le Mans was occupied by Prince 
Frederick Charles, and that the Grand Duke of Mecklenburg was in purfuit. I ex- 
plained my photographs of carts to the Crown Prince. Moltke afterwards took them 
up and examined them, and I tried to engage him in converfation, but failed. He 
feems to fay little to anybody. The Prince came and talked to me for a quarter of 
an hour about various things, including the Alice Hofpital." 

The Alice Hofpital was in exiftence for nine months, and about 700 German 
and 250 French fick and wounded foldiers were treated in it. The number of deaths 
was 5 1 . 

Charles Mayo remained in the German fervice till the fubfidiary military eftablifli- 
ment was broken up after the peace. He brought back with him the decorations of 
Knight of the firft clafs of the Order of Philip the Generous, Hefle, 8th April, 1 87 1 ;

was the author of feveral inventions for coupling flops and otherwife improving the 
mechanifm of organs, and had collected a large number of organ-pipes from various 
fources, which he intended to put together fome day when he fhould have leifure to 
conftruct a perfect inftrument. It may here be noticed that he was Surgeon to the 
Inns of Court Volunteers, and to the National Rifle Aflbciation, in which capacity 
he attended the annual rifle matches at Wimbledon. He was occafionally confulted 
on fanitary queftions, and fometimes contributed articles to the medical prefs, e.g. 
an analyfis of Cohn's book on Embolifm (" Medical Times and Gazette," vol. i. 

Being ftill indifpofed to fettle down in England, he failed for Fiji, as one of the 
Government Medical Officers, in the fuite of Sir A. Gordon, on March 25th, 1875. 
Here he was ftationed at Kandavu, and after fuflering much difcomfort and great 
proftration of ftrength and energy, he was at laft attacked by acute dyfentery. He 
was moved to the hofpital at Levuka, where he was put on board the S.S. Lyee 
Moon, for Sydney, in the hope that his life would be faved by a fea voyage. But he 
died on the afternoon of the 15th July, 1877, after being on board thirty-three hours, 
and was buried at fea, 200 miles fouth-weft of Kandavu. 

A memorial window to him and his father has been placed (1879) in the north 
aifle of the nave of Winchefter Cathedral, exactly oppofite the font. It contains 
figures of S. Swithin, S. James Major, William of Wykeham, SS. Cuthberga, Luke, 
and Cecilia. Under the figures are the Mayo arms, with the mottoes, "Nuncia 
pads Oliva" and " Vehit ad fidera virtus." There are two legends: " In Memoriam

T will now be necefTary to refer back to the early part of the preceding 
chapter, and to refume the thread of the narrative with Charles, 
the eighth child of John Mayo and Joane (nee Hayes). 

Charles Mayo was baptifed at S. John Baptift's, Devizes, 21ft 
March, 1685-6, and early in life fettled in the parifh of S. Peter 
in Hereford, 1 where he lived and died. As has already been 
fhown in a previous chapter, William Mayo, who reprefented the city of Hereford 
in Parliament in 1722, lived in this parifh, and many of his children were baptifed 
there. Young Charles Mayo loft little time in entering the eftate of matrimony. 
On 7th May, 17 10, he married at his parifh church, Anne, daughter of Thomas 
Alderne, J. P., and Cuftos of S. Giles' Hofpital, by his third wife 
Mary, daughter of — Auftin, and widow of Henry Dryden, of 
London, a brother of the poet. Thomas Alderne had previoufly 
married Elizabeth, daughter of Sir Edward Honywood, Bart., of 
Evington, in Kent, and, after her deceafe, Eleanor, daughter of John 
Guife, of Abbotfcourt, in Gloucefterfhire. His daughter Anne was 
baptifed at S. Peter's, Hereford, 24th November, 1687, and was 
buried there 10th October, 17 13. A more detailed account of her 
family will be found in the ninth chapter of this book. 

The next year fees Charles Mayo again a married man. On 24th April, 17 14, 
he married, at Ledbury, Anne, daughter of Benjamin Prichard, M.A., Prebendary of 
Hereford, and Vicar and Portionift of Ledbury. Her anceftry has already been given 
in the preceding pages. She was buried at S. Peter's, Hereford, 13th May, 1754, 
having furvived her hufband. Charles Mayo was admitted a freeman of Hereford,

He was originally intended for the bar, but having become fubject to deafnefs he 
found that he could not fufHciently hear the proceedings of the courts of law, and 
remained at Oxford taking pupils till the year 1 8 17, when on the 30th of May, upon 
the recommendation of the Dean of Chrift Church he was elected Head Mafterof the 
Grammar School of Bridgnorth, in the county of Salop. He entered on his duties Head

was ordained Deacon 21ft December, 18 17, and Prieft 6th fune, 18 19, in Chrift School > 
Church Cathedral, by the Bilhop of Oxford. Having heard through Mr. Synge, of 
Glanmore Caftle, County Wicklow, of Peftalozzi's principles of education, he obtained 
leave of his college to travel, 7th April, 18 19, and having refigned his fchool at 
Bridgnorth in July of that year, he joined Peftalozzi's eftablifhment at Yverdun in who, after

blifhed a fchool of his own at Cheam (fee Chapter VIII.). For nearly three years, 
till April, 1822, he remained at Yverdun, maftering the principles of Peftalozzianifm, 
and then returned to England, having determined to devote his life to their introduc-

Edward Hardwicke, " then called Oak-Ball day, the boys, thinking they had a

peremptorily refufed. They were not however to be fo put off. Under cover of

During the time he was at Cheam, Dr. Mayo took great interefl in the founda- Hiscon-

many if not mod of his principles have infenfibly been adopted and affimilated in the 
modern fyftem of education. 
Failing In the year 1845 Dr. Mayo's health, which for fome time had been failing, 

now became fo weak that he was obliged to obtain the affiftance of his brother-in-

at Chriftmas, and immediately took the management of the School, and eventually 
fucceeded to it. Dr. Mayo died on the 23rd of February, 1846, and was buried in

II. Elizabeth Mayo was born 18th June, 1793, in Hammet Street, and baptifed 2. Elizabeth 
at S. Botolph's, Aldgate. On the return of her brother, Dr. Mayo, from Switzer- vot a e y d °' to % e

where fhe remained till 1834, helping him in the inftruction of his boys, and in 
applying the principles of Peftalozzi to Englifh education. During this time fhe 
wrote the work by which her name is beft known, " LefTbns on Objects," which 
was followed by " LefTbns on Shells." In 1834 fhe removed with her mother 
to Belfize Lane, Hampftead, and thence to Oakhill Park, in the fame parifh, 
in 1853. 

From 1 843 and onwards her efforts were concentrated upon the work of the 
Home and Colonial School Society. For two years, in 1 848 and 1 849, fhe edited 
a quarterly magazine publifhed by that Society, until failing health compelled her to 
relinquifh it. The following notes are communicated by Mr. E. Coglan, one of the 
Matters of Method at the Home and Colonial College, who had the advantage of 
perfbnal communication with Mifs Mayo for many years : — - 

" Dr. and Mifs Mayo were devoted to the Principles of Education advocated by Notes on 
Peftalozzi, but they did not always agree with the methods and plans adopted by „' r t ™ rk 
him and his immediate afTociates in teaching different fubjects. They fought to give " ome . and 
more definitenefs to his religious views, and to bring them more into harmony with School 
found Chriftian principles. They knew that Peftalozzi himfelf was not a good 
teacher, and where they departed from him in any of his methods and plans of 
teaching they fought others more in harmony with his principles. When Dr. Mayo 
began his work at Cheam, Peftalozzianifm was generally looked upon as ridiculous 
and contemptible, fynonymous with all that is impracticable and fantaftic. Now the 
principles of Peftalozzi are recognized and advocated by every educated fchoolmafter 
in the country, and the fpirit of his methods pervades many fchools whofe teachers 
never heard of his name, and this general recognition is in no fmall degree due to 
the work of Dr. Mayo at Cheam and of Mifs Mayo at the Home and Colonial. 

" It is rather difficult to fay exactly what the work of Mifs Mayo was at this 
inftitution between the years 1843, ana o %"> l %55> f° r ft^ exercifed a general fuper- 
vifion over everything that was taught, wrote model fketches and lefTons on many of 
the fubjects, and fometimes in the earlier of thefe years gave lefTons to fhow how 
certain fubjects ought to be handled in clafs teaching. 

" Her work after I came to the inftitution in 1845 ma y b? fummed up thus, — 

" 1. She reviewed and revifed the programme of work in each of the fchools, 
and was always confulted by the teachers when they wifhed to make any change. 

" 2. She either initiated or fupervifed the courfes of lefTons given in the fchools 
on Objects, Scripture, Geography, Natural Hiftory, &c, and her fketches and lefTons 
on thefe fubjects ftill continue in ufe both in the fchools and in the training of the 

80 Charles Mayo of S. Peter s in Hereford. 

" 3. Within the years above mentioned, and perhaps for fome time afterwards, 
all new officers wrote and fent to her every week fketches of the leflbns on Objects, 
Scripture, etc., they were to give the following week. Thefe were returned with 
her remarks, which were always valuable becaufe pointing out where fome plan was 
unfuitable or fome principle violated. 

" 4. Reports of leflbns given in the fchools were feen by her in the ftudents' 
journals and criticized. If anything in thefe reports feemed to require more than a 
marginal note, the teacher was fent for or vifited, and the matter fet right. 

" 5. Some of the journals kept by the ftudents in training were fent to her every 
week. Thefe fhe read through with great care, pointing out any violations of edu- 
cational principles or approved methods of teaching. This work fhe confidered of 
fo much importance that fhe hardly ever allowed anything to interfere with it, and 
fhe continued to do it whilft her health enabled her to do fo. I may add that her 
criticifms were very direct, often (harp, always clear, going to the root of the matter, 
always genial becaufe never ill-natured or farcaftic. She was ever open to the officers' 
vifits, and feemed never happier than whilft fharing with them the treafures of her 
knowledge and experience." 

It may be noted as an interefting fact that the late Mifs Cheflar, the well-known 
member of the London School Board, who died 3rd September, 1880, learnt her 
principles of teaching from Mifs Mayo, whofe frequent gueft fhe was at Hampftead. 

Her death, Mifs Mayo died at Malvern, ift September, 1865, aged 72 years, and on the 

8th of the fame month was buried in Kenfal Green Cemetery, in her mother's

" The Committee of the Home & Colonial School Society erect this tablet to 
commemorate the ineftimable fervices of Mifs Elizabeth Mayo, in having adapted to 
the Englifh mind & character the principles of Peftalozzi leavened with evangelical 
truth. She devoted herfelf to the direction of the fchools & the training of the 
ftudents of this inftitution, & endeared herfelf to all by her hearty fympathy, wife 
counfel, & friendly aid. Mifs Mayo's intereft in this fociety continued during 30 
years, until her death in 1865, at the age of 72. Her laft labour of love was the 
preparation of an edition of " Religious Inftruction for the Young," & her bequeft of 
^500 has led to the erection for the education of the Middle Gaffes of this ftructure, 
to be called The Mayo School-room."

" London City Miffion," firft confided his plan for the formation of that fociety, 
which was eftablifhed in 1835. Herbert Mayo was on the managing committee of 
that inftitution, as well as on that of the Home and Colonial School Society, and 
worked inceffantly for both objects from their commencement. He refided at 
Hampftead from 1 848 until his death, and took an active part in promoting the 
religious welfare of the Sailors' Orphan and Soldiers' Orphan Inftitution, and the 
Government Reformatory for Girls, all of which are eftablifhed in that neighbour- 
hood — teaching himfelf in each every week. He was a conftant vifitor at the 
Hampftead Workhoufe, in which Union he was a Guardian of the Poor, and was 
greatly beloved by the inmates. The North London Confumptive Hofpital at 
Mount Vernon was fituated near his houfe in Oakhill Park, and at the requeft of 
the clerical chaplain he acted practically as his fubftitute in the fpiritual care of the 
patients in the inftitution. The laft work to which he devoted himfelf was the found- 
ing a branch of the Young Men's Chriftian Aflbciation at Hampftead, a fact re- 
corded by an infcription placed in their principal room by the young men of that 
fociety. Befides thefe engagements at home, he beftowed much thought upon the 
Proteftant congregations of Italy, and after the winter of 1856-7, which he fpent at 
Nice, made feveral journeys to that country with the purpofe of vifiting the paftors 
and encouraging them in their work. 

His death, Herbert Mayo died at Broadftairs 14th September, 1874, and was buried on the 

burial, 21ft of the fame month in the Kenfal Green Cemetery, in the prefence of a large 
aftembly of all claries, and at his grave his two favourite hymns were fung, the one 
by a body of City Miftlonaries, the other by thirty foldiers' daughters from the 
Home. The Rev. J. Kirkman, Vicar of S. Stephen's, Hampftead, writing in his 
parifh magazine of October, 1874, in giving fome account of his character and 

and cha- labours, ftates that he was foremoft in all good works connected with that parifh, fo 
that his name was a fanction, and its abfence a fufpicion on any fcheme, and adds that 
through a fphere far beyond thefe inftitutions he was vifible with the light of humility, 
loving gentlenefs of difpofition, genuine active friendfhip, and largenefs of heart.

Herbert Mayo, D.D., son of Charles Mayo of S. Peter's in Hereford, 


Reflor of 
and then of 
S. George's 
in the Eaft. 

The " Gen- 

ERBERT MAYO, the fon of Charles Mayo and Anne {nee 
Prichard), was baptifed in the parifhof S. Peter in Hereford 15th 
December, 1720. He matriculated at Oxford 9th April, 1739, 
from Brafenofe College, as "generofi Alius," aged 18, and on the 
20th of May, 1740, was elected to the fellowlhip founded by his 
anceftor Canon Elton, which he held until the year 1765. He 
graduated B.A. 15th October, 1742, M.A. 13th June, 1745, B.D. 3rd April, 1762, 
and D.D. 28th June, 1763, and was ordained Prieft 23rd December, 1744, by 
Thomas, Bifhop of Oxford, in Chrift Church Cathedral. 

In the earlier part of his life he held fucceffively the curacies of Stratford-le-Bow, 
Whitechapel, and Spitalfields. " During this period," fo fays the memoir of him in 
the " Gentleman's Magazine," volume 72, part i., pp. 88 and 682, "when college 
offices occafionally required his attendance, he proved his zeal for the welfare of the 
fociety to which he belonged by a liberal enforcement of difcipline and a judicious 
arrangement of the complicated and at that time confufed ftate of the accounts." In 
1764 he was prefented by the College to the Rectory of Middleton Cheney in 
Northarnptonfhire, and was inftituted on the 7th of May in that year, but upon the 
living of S. George's-in-the-Eaft becoming vacant fhortly after, he refigned the former 
and more eligible preferment on the 31ft of the following July, in order to labour 
near the fphere of his former work, and was appointed by the College to this living. 
In 1799 he was prefented to the Vicarage of Tollefbury, Eflex, by William Beau- 
maris Rum, the patron, and was inftituted on the 3 ift of May, but he conftantly Te- 
nded in S. George's parifh during his incumbency. 

To quote again from the " Gentleman's Magazine," " Under the defcriptions of 
a citizen, a Chriftian, and a clergyman, in all the domeftic and focial relations, his 
character was ftrictly irreproachable and highly meritorious. His rectitude, fteadi- 
nefs, and liberality of principle, his perfect command of temper and felf-government, 

Herbert Mayo, D.D. 85 

the firmnefs of his attachments and opennefs of his manners, and above all the ex- 
tenfivenefs of his impartiality and economy of his benevolence are qualities which, it 
is hoped, have not vainly fhed their luftre through a licentious age." 


Another interefting memoir of Dr. Mayo was fent by " A London Curate," an( j "The 
11th January, 1802, to "The Orthodox Churchman's Magazine," volume ii., church-* 
pages 30-32. He writes, "Gentlemen, The venerable Herbert Mayo, D.D., ™ an ' s . „ 
Rector of St. George's, Middlefex, died on the 5th inftant, aged 82 years. Will you 
permit one, who loved him while living, to embalm his memory in your pages 
now that he is dead. Dr. Mayo was a native of Herefordfhire, and was educated at 
Brafenofe College, Oxford, which prefented him to the living of St. George's. Dr. 
Mayo was a divine of that clafs which, though it enjoy not all the fplendid celebrity 
that adorns fome others, perhaps excels all in real utility ; that is to fay, he was a 
good pariffi prieji. He was a man of great experience in that particular branch of his defcribe 
profeflion, having been for fome time Curate of Bow le Stratford, then ten years go^/parito 
Curate of Whitechapel, then ten years Curate at Spitalfields, before he entered upon pneft ' 
the living of St. George in the Eaft, where I think he refided thirty-eight 
years. There is no church in London where divine fervice is performed with 
more rubrical correclnefs than in St. George's. The affiduity of a paftor, attentive and dilate 
to all the minutiae of propriety in the ufe of the Liturgy, produced a correfpondent rubrical 
regularity in his congregation. Everything at St. George's is done svayrifiovwg ical exaanefs ' 
koto ra&v. Dr. Mayo had a peculiar but by no means unimpreflive mode of 
preaching in his earlier years, but his labours were not confined to the pulpit merely. 
He was the inftructor of the young in the catechetical way, the reclaimer of and paftorai 
the difiblute, the grave rebuker of the blafphemer, the admonilher of thofe who had airidmty ' 
reached the gradation of unthinking levity in the fcale of offence, and were tottering 
on the brink of vice. He was the comforter of the fick and cherifher of thofe who 
languished under the deprefiion of poverty. He adminiftered the aids of religion 
to thofe who were pafling from time to eternity, and often, by the fide of the grave, 
exerted a vigour beyond the routine of duty, whilft he taught thofe who attended on 
the interment of their friends to prepare for their latter end. He was particularly 
fond of negroes and uninftrucled men of colour, who, employed generally on board his fondnefs 
of (hip, occafionally refided in his parifh, which is full of feafaring people. I fuppofe ofne 8 roes >

no clergyman in England ever baptifed fo many black men and mulattoes; nor did 

he at any time baptife them without much previous preparation that the inward and 

fpiritual grace might accompany the outward and vifible form of baptifm. The 

attachment of thefe poor people to him was very great. Several of them never came 

into the port of London, without waiting upon him, by way of teftifying the refpect 

his zeal as a in which they held him. Dr. Mayo was a magistrate of the county of Middlefex, 

for Middfe- an d performed the functions of that office, in his parochial relations, with great 

{ "' attention. The zealous care with which he watched over the charity fchools in his 

his care of . _ J 

the fchools panih was very becoming. One of them is a fchool of high character, — Raine's 
pariih, Hofpital I mean, — into which young girls are tranfplanted out of the ordinary 
parochial fchool, and are taught all forts of ufeful houfehold work, and then, after 
having lived five years in fervice, and bringing teftimonials of their good behaviour, 
they are entitled to draw lots for a marriage portion of one hundred pounds, and are 
married to fome induftrious mechanic, a member of the Church of England. Dr. 
Mayo was treafurer of this excellent foundation. I faw him laft May day, in the 
prefence of a numerous affemblage of the truftees and others, among whom were 
both the members of Parliament, deliver a purfe of £100 to one of the young 
women who had been married by him that morning. The good old man gave the 
new-married pair a fuitable charge in a mod: affectionate way. His infirmities, 'tis 
true, impeded his fpeech not a little, he feemed to feel it was the laft he mould 
make on fuch an occafion, but I affure you, gentlemen, that there was an eloquence 
in his very paufes, and fomething fo touching in the tears that trickled down 
his cheeks, that they muft have had hearts of ftone who could hear him 
unmoved. ... I hope I mall not hurt the feelings of his family (a wife, two fons 
both married, and two daughters), who furvive him, when I fay that never man was 
his frugality happier in all his domeftic relations. . . . Dr. Mayo was a man of true frugality. He 
rofity. was a contributor to moft public charities, from Chrift's Hofpital downwards. He 
has walked, leaning on my arm, in the ftreets of London, to fave the expenfe of a 
coach, and given the half-crown to the orphan fon of a clergyman, when he 
got home. He had the management of the property of many perfons. A fmile he 
had of peculiar benignity. He was a man of great good humour, and often 
indulged in a fpecies of chaftened pleafantry, and Dr. South himfelf was not 
fonder of a pun. He was bleffed with a long feries of years of uninterrupted 
health. Rain never flopped him. Dr. Mayo was a Tory in politics. His religious 
principles were truly orthodox." 

Dr. Mayo died 5th January, and was buried at S. George's, 13th January, 
1802. His will, which is very brief, is dated 16th February, 1797, and was proved 
in the Prerogative Court, 6th February, 1802 (Kenyon, 126), and in it he leaves all 
his eftate at the difpofal of his wife and names her fole executrix. His portrait was

He did not however refide in Highgate, and in the regifter his name only occurs in

John Mayo matriculated at Oxford, ift June, 1778, aged fixteen, as " generofi and a fon, 
filius," having entered at Brafenofe College, and he graduated B.A. 14th January, 1782. m.a., ay °' 
He was elected Fellow of Oriel College, 16th April, 1784, and proceeded M.A. ° r'c' p 
2nd June, 1785, B.M. 31ft January, 1787, D.M. 15th July, 1788, as a member Feiiow of 
of that Society. He was admitted a Candidate of the Royal College of Phyficians, college, 
30th September, 1788, and a Fellow, 30th September, 1789, and he was Cenfor in 
1790, 1795, 1797, 1804, and 1808, Harveian Orator in 1795, and Elect on 10th 
April, 1807, which laft office he refigned, 6th October, 18 13. He was Phyfician Phyfician 
to the Foundling Hofpital from July, 1787, to 1809, and to the Middlefex Hofpital Foundling 
from 6th November, 1788, to the date of his refignation, nth January, 1803, and Hof P' u '' 
he was alfo Phyfician in Ordinary to the Princefs of Wales. He is defcribed in 1789 
as of Lamb's Conduit Street, and in 1 8 1 2 of Albany, in London. 

Erafmus Wilfon, in his " Hiftory of the Middlefex Hofpital," 1845, page 197, 
gives an account of Dr. Mayo's appointment at that inftitution. 

" In the month of September, 1788, it was refolved by the weekly board that 
by reafon of the avocations of Dr. Smyth and Dr. Milman it is expedient to elect an 
additional phyfician to the hofpital. Some preparations for this vacancy had been 
made on the preceding board-day, when Dr. John Mayo became a governor of the 
Hofpital, and at the prefent board the Rev. Dr. Herbert Mayo paid his ' firft 
annual fubfcription.' The candidates for office were Dr. John Mayo and Dr. John 
Hamon. The latter gendeman, at the quarterly Court held November 6th, 1788, 
withdrew his pretenfions, and Dr. Mayo was unanimoufly elected." Later on in and phy- 
the fame work, at page 200, we read that, "at the weekly board, December, 1802, Middlefex' 
it was ' moved by Mr. Treafurer Collick and feconded by Mr. Howard, furgeon, Hof f" tal - 
which motion was carried unanimoufly, that Dr. Mayo, who has been phyfician to 
this hofpital with equal advantage to the charity and honour to himfelf for fourteen 
years be folicited to attend the cancer ward as phyfician extraordinary.' " Dr. Mayo's 
reply was as follows : —

' Dr. John 

The refolution of the laft board, containing a requeft that I would attend the Mayo. 
cancer ward as phyfician extraordinary, needs only the confirmation of a general court 
to have my moft hearty acquiefcence. I fee in the adminiftration of that part of its 
eftablifliment the moft important interefts of the inftitution involved ; and as far as in 
me lies I fliall be happy to join my endeavours to thofe of my colleagues to enfure its 
fuccefs. If, in the fituation I have now for fome years held as one of the phyficians of 
the hofpital, I have acquired the approbation of the board, I cannot forget how much 
of that I owe to the kind affiftance of thofe colleagues. I have the honour to be your 
faithful fervant, 

John Mayo.

At the next weekly board the following letter was received from Dr. John 
Mayo : — 

Berners St. 

January 1 1, 1803. 


It was my intention, juft before I was afflicted with the illnefs from which I 
am happily now recovered, to refign the fituation I have for many years filled of one 
of the phyficians to the Middlefex hofpital ; and I hefitated only left my refignation, 
confidered as the confequence of my illnefs, might appear to the public as a 
relinquifhment of all my profeffional purfuits ; at the fame time I had the fatisfaction 
of knowing that my fhare of duty in the hofpital was very ably executed by my 
colleagues. The flattering offer which has been made me by the board of the new 
appointment of phyfician extraordinary to the cancer ward makes me reluctant to 
quit the hofpital altogether, and as the duties of the fituation are not incompatible 
with my other profeffional engagements, I have done myfelfthe honour to accept the 
appointment, provided it meets with the concurrence of the next quarterly Court. 
In the meantime I muft refign the office I now hold ; and truft it will be to the 
general interefts of the charity at large that my attention fhould be folely directed to 
the cancer eftabliftiment. 

I have the honour to be, etc., 

John Mayo. 

Dr. Mayo held this new appointment until 1817. " For many years before his 
death," to quote Dr. Munk's Roll of the Royal College of Phyficians, 1861, vol. ii., 
page 343, " it was Dr. Mayo's cuftom to divide his time between London and 
Tunbridge Wells, refiding at the latter during the fummer months. There he enjoyed 
the implicit confidence of all ranks, and took the undifputed lead in the medical 
bufinefs and emoluments of that town and neighbourhood." 

Dr. Mayo fixed his permanent abode in Tunbridge Wells in 18 17, and dying 
foon after was buried at Speldhurft, 8th December, 18 18, and his will was proved in 
the Prerogative Court (Crefwell 573). He was the author of a fmall pamphlet 
entitled, " The information and complaint made to the Court at the Hofpital 
for the Maintenance and Education of expofed and deferted children. London. 
1790." 8vo.

his prefent wife, Ann Green, dated 20th Auguft, 1760, and his three children by her, viz., John, 
Thomas, and Ann Cock : Jane, the only furviving child of his firft wife, and then married to Dr.

Efq. to Thomas Cock, Efq. of Tottenham, whofe widow, Mrs. Anne Cock, was 
proprietor at the date of his work. A note in the " Gentleman's Magazine" at the 
end of the year 1791 records that "Lately, at his houfe at Tottenham, a martyr to 
the gout, died Thomas Cock, Efq., a Hamburgh merchant." 

Dr. John Mayo married fecondly, on 12th September, 18 12, Frances-Lavinia, and 2. 
daughter of William Fellowes of Ramfey Abbey and Narjton, Suffolk, M.P. for Sud- Lavinia,

with whom he remained three years, and he was then for eighteen months at Weft- f.r'.s '

" I was a fellow of Oriel, to the attainment of which honour I had pledged myfelf to 
my father, provided he would permit me to efcape the" foundation "of Weftminfter 
and its peculiar training, which combined with a very fair proportion of Latin and 
Greek occasional aeroftation in a blanket."

In London, 

interesting extract may here be given from a letter written by Dr. Coplefton 
(Provoft of Oriel, 1 8 14, and Bifhop of Llandaff) to Mr. Richards. 

Oriel College, 15th May, 1811. 

"My dear Richards, 

It will give you I know unfeigned pleafure to hear that Mayo has acquitted 
himfelf nobly at his examination. It was by far the beft appearance I have ever 
witnefled. He had Ariftotle's Ethics Rhetoric and Poetics, all the Tragedians, 
all Homer, Demofthenes, Thucydides and Pindar, Tacitus, Livy, Virgil and 
Juvenal. His Greek Teftament and anfwers in religion were all excellent as well as 
his logic. 

1 often wifhed you had been prefent to witnefs the firm clear and manly 
expreflion he gave to the meaning of his authors, and his wonderfully accurate 
account of the argumentative treatifes of Ariftotle. He has gained already no fmall 
reputation by the difplay he made in the fchools, and there can be no doubt this will 
receive a durable ftamp when the lift of honours appears. He fully juftified the 
opinion I had conceived very early and which I communicated to you of the manly 
tone and vigour of his intellect. He has befides great firmnefs of nerve and a ready 
command of language which all turned to a good account on this occafion." 

Dr. Coplefton wrote at the fame time to Mayo's father, as follows, " Although 
I have had fome experience in the matter myfelf, I muft fay without hefitation that it 
was the beft clafllcal examination I ever heard." 

The Rev. John Davifon (author of " Difcourfes on Prophecy") in a letter to Mr. 
Richard sfpeaks in fimilar terms, and adds that Mayo received " what was a very 
unufual thing from that folemn bench the immediate applaufe of fome of the 
examining tutors." 

Thomas Mayo was elected Fellow of Oriel 23rd April, 18 13, and proceeded 
M.A. ift June, 1814, B.M. 4th February, 1815, and D. M. 17th June, 1818. He 
entered upon his profeflion at Tunbridge Wells, but at the date of his marriage in 
1817 he is defcribed as " of Queen Anne Street," London. On the death of his 
father in the following year he fucceeded to his large and remunerative practice in 
the former town. In 1835 he fettled in London, and refided at $6, Wimpole 
Street, and was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society on the fourth of June in the 
fame year. On 25th March, 1841, he was elected Phyfician to the Marylebone 
Infirmary. He was alfo Phyfician in Ordinary to H.R.H. the Duke of Suflex. 

Again to quote the narrative of Dr. Munk. " He had been admitted an 
Inceptor-Candidate of the College of Phyficians 25th June, 18 16, a Candidate 30th 
September, 18 18, and a Fellow, 30th September, 18 19. He was Cenfor in 1835, 
1839, and 1850. He delivered the Lumleian Lectures in 1839 and 1842, the 
Harveian Oration in 1841, and the Croonian Lectures in 1853. He was Con-

filiarius in 1838, in 1842 to 1844, ' n ^48 to 1850, in 1852 to 1854, and laftly in 

1856, and was named an Elect 26th June, 1847. Finally, on the 5th of January, 

1857, he was elected Prefident in fucceflion to Dr. Paris, deceafed, and was annually and is 
re-elected until 1862, when he was fucceeded by Sir Thomas Watfon, Bart. prefident 

" Dr. Mayo prefided over the College at a moll critical period of its hiftory, when cJuege of' 

it was undergoing thofe changes in its conftitution that were rendered necefiary by Phyficians, 

the Medical Act of 21 and 22 Victoria. In the lengthened deliberations which 

preceded the fundamental alterations finally agreed on, Dr. Mayo, as prefident, took 

an active part, and the fellows of the College acknowledged their fenfe of his 

fervices by retaining him for another year in his office as prefident, on the change in 

the mode of election, when the eight elects and the exclufive election of prefident 

from and by that order were abolilhed and the election to the prefidency was veiled 

in the fellows at large. On his retiring from that pofition in 1862, it was propofed whkhoffice 
& & r r r he holds tm 



by Dr. Hawkins, feconded by Sir Charles Locock, Bart., and agreed to unanimoufly 
in a very large afiembly of the fellows, ' That the fincere and cordial thanks of the 
College be returned to Dr. Mayo, the late Prefident, for the indefatigable zeal and 
entire devotion, the never-failing courtefy and dignity, with which he has prefided 
over the College during upwards of five years, and efpecially for his great and 
difinterefted fervices in promoting and carrying into effect during his period of office 
important changes in the flate and conftitution of the College.' " 

From this time Dr. Mayo withdrew from practice, and refided firft at Yarmouth 
in the Ifle of Wight, and then at Corfham, Wilts, where he died 13th January, 
1 87 1, and where he was interred. His portrait, painted by J. Lonfdale, is in the 
pofleffion of his fon Charles-Thomas Mayo, and a crayon drawing of his likenefs 
was prefented in 1880 to the College of Phyficians by G. Richmond, R.A. The 
latter, with the permiffion of the College and the artift, has been engraved for 
infertion in this work.

occafion confidered it to be our duty to oppofe in this journal fome of the medico- 

pfychological and judicial opinions propounded by Dr. Mayo ; we neverthelefs are 

glad to avail ourfelves of this opportunity of fully and freely acknowledging this 

phyfician 's varied attainments, great talents, and undoubted private worth. As an 

accompli filed and vigorous writer, acute and logical thinker, he occupies a high and 

enviable pofition among his contemporaries. Dr. Mayo's fcholaftic and literary 

attainments are of the higheft order. We feel afiured that he will gracefully wear 

the laurels that have fallen upon him, and that all the anxious and refponfible duties 

of his elevated pofition will be difcharged with honour to himfelf and with fatisfaclion 

to the profeflion of which he forms fo bright an ornament." 

The recoi- The following recollections of this phyfician have been communicated by Dr. 

Dr.'Robert Robert Druitt. "When I was attending the Middlefex Hofpital in 1835 I found 

Drmtt. Y) r Thongs Mayo, whom I had feen in conftant attendance on his brother's lectures 

on the nervous fyftem at King's College, equally diligent in going round with Dr., 

now Sir Thomas Watfon, and the other phyficians, in their clinical vifits to the wards. 

His character at that time was pithily exprefled by a ftudent, who faid that he 

looked like a man who read Aretasus. In fact he infpired refpect by the depth and 

folidity of his attainments. He was affected with a fort of nervous twitching of the 

eyes, which deprived him of the appearance of eafe and fluency as a fpeaker, yet he 

fpoke readily and well, though with fome apparent effort, and was always liftened to 

with attention. He delivered a remarkable addrefs at one of the Friday evening 

Addrefsat meetings at the Royal Inftitution in Albemarle Street, nth May, i860, 'On the 

relations of the Public to the Science and Practice of Medicine,' the Duke of 

Wellington being in the chair. But the boldeft and belt, fpeech I ever heard him 

make was at a meeting of the Royal Medical and Chirurgical Society in Berners 

Street, I think about the year 1845. The difcufiion was about mefmerifm and its 

alleged power of producing anasfthefia or catalepfy, in fo much that the patient 

might fuffer a furgical operation without knowing it. At that time mefmerifm was 

very unpopular; it was mixed up with a lot of incredible and difcreditable theories 

and practices ; neverthelefs it is an eftablifhed fact that fuch phenomena can be 

produced, and Dr. Mayo's calm, deep, philofophical recognition of this was in 

ftriking contrail to the wild denunciations of thofe who only regarded the roguery of 

the mefmerift, without considering the validity of the nervous phenomena which were

Hofpital as furgical pupil 17th May, 18 14, when Mr. John Joberns was furgeon of 
that inftitution, and, as he himfelf tells us in his book on the Nervous Syftem pub- 
lished in 1 842, was a pupil of Sir Charles Bell during the years 18 12, 18 13, 18 14, 
and 1 8 1 5. He alfo ftudied at Leyden, and was M.D. of that Univerfity. He was 
appointed Houfe Surgeon at the Middlefex Hofpital 18th Auguft, 1818, and a year 
after, on the 6th of Auguft, 18 19, became a Member of the Royal College of Surgeons, 
of which fociety he appears as one of the Fellows in the firft lift, 1843. He next 
became Lecturer on Anatomy in the celebrated Medical School in Great Windmill 
Street, an eftablifhment which was conducted by a joint body of lecturers connected 
with the Middlefex and other London Hofpitals ; and on the ift of January, 1827, 
publifhed his firft edition of " Outlines of Human Phyfiology," being heads of phy- 
fiological lectures delivered in that fchool. He was appointed Surgeon of the Mid- 
dlefex Hofpital 23rd Auguft, 1827, which poft he refigned on account of long 
continued illnefs, 15th November, 1842. He was ProfefTor of Anatomy and 
Surgery to the Royal College of Surgeons, 1828 and 1829, and was elected a Fellow 
of the Royal Society 17th April, 1828. On the eftablifhment of King's College he 
received the appointment of ProfefTor of Anatomy, which he held from 1830 to 
1836, and was ProfefTor of Phyfiology and Pathological Anatomy at that inftitution 
in the laft named year. In 1832 he was elected a Fellow of the Geological Society. 
The Medical School in connection with the Middlefex Hofpital was commenced ift 
October, 1835, and Herbert Mayo held the pofition of Lecturer on Surgery from 
the clofe of the feflion of 1836-7 till his refignation in 1842-3. 

The following valuable particulars relating to Herbert Mayo's career and his 
contributions to fcience have been furnifhed by Dr. Robert Druitt. 

" In Auguft, 1822, appeared the firft part of the Anatomical and Phyfiological 
Commentaries, the fecond and only other part in July, 1823. Thefe Commentaries 
are a collection of efTays defcribing various points of anatomy and phyfiology made 
out by H. Mayo's own refearches, but there are two points which give them an 
enduring place in the annals of medical literature. In the firft place they contain 
an elaborate, fomewhat abridged, tranflation of ProfefTor Reil's papers on the minute 
anatomy of the brain, tranflated from the original German ■ Archiven fur die Phyfio- 
logie ' of Reil and Autenrieth, 1807 and 1808, quite unknown in England before 
Mayo's tranflation, and illuftrated by 14 Plates, drawn and printed by W. Sheldrick. 
Thefe papers of Reil's in their Englifh drefs form the mine to which every one had 
recourfe who defired a found knowledge, fo far as it goes, of the moft difficult and 
intricate part of human anatomy. The brain, as is well known, confifts of two por- 
tions, one a grey cineritious fubftance, compofed of minute cells or veficles and 
fuppofed to be the feat of the real operations of the nervous fyftem ; the other part 
is a white or medullary fubftance, compofed of minute tubes or hollow fibrillar form- 
ing an infinity of connections between the different parts of the brain and fpinal cord. 

Thomas Mayo and William Mayo, M.A. 1 1 1 

Of fimilar ftruclure, but firmer, are the nerves which are attached at one end to the 
brain or fpinal cord, and at the other to every part of the body. The courfe of the 
medullary fibres of the brain may be fhown in a rough manner by fcraping or tearing 
— (the mafs is of about the confiftency of blancmange) — a method which was, as 
Mayo called it, facile and popular, and was much employed by phrenologifts. Red's 
method was much more fevere and thorough. He immerfed the brain in alcohol till 
it had become fhrunken and hard, and thus was enabled to give, not a parting 
glimpfe merely, but a pofitive demonftration of the courfe of the fibres, or at leaft of 
fuch of them as are capable of being traced. For the next 10 or 15 years phreno- 
logy, or craniology as it better deferves to be called, was very popular with people 
who would now be faid to be of ' advanced thought.' Mayo ridiculed and hated it, 
for he was difTatisfied with their anatomical method, and affirmed that there was no 
connection between the fo-called organs into which the furface of the head was mapped 
out, and the real fubdivifions of the brain within. 

" The fecond point of intereft about the Commentaries is that No. I., Auguft, 
1822, contains Mayo's aflertion of his difcovery of the real funclion of the nerves of and for his 

r • i-i 1 • --r^i - in- claim to the 

the face, and his account of the experiments which proved it. This was the itarting difcovery 
point of an exceedingly bitter and' prolonged controverfy with Sir Charles Bell, who ^4™ of 
alfo claimed the difcovery. In order to make this clear we mull: obferve that there ^^"fa" 
are certain points about the nerves which continued unfolved puzzles till the year 
1822, when they were cleared up by the fimultaneous but independent refearches of 
Magendie, Sir C. Bell, and Herbert Mayo. It is well known that an ordinary nerve, 
fuch as thofe of the limbs, contains bound up in one fheath and inextricably united 
together the nerves of fenfation which convey impreflions from the furface to the 
centre, and the motor nerves which fet the mufcles in aclion by a force travelling 
from the centre to the circumference. It was long known that each nerve-trunk 
that ftarts from the fpinal cord arifes by two fets of roots, the anterior and the pos- 
terior ; the pofterior has on it a fmall ganglion or knot of nervous matter ; the two 
roots foon unite to form inextricably one trunk, which ferves for fenfation and 
motion. It was not known till Magendie eftablifhed it by experiment in 1822 that 
the pofterior roots of the fpinal nerves are the real nerves of fenfation, and the ante- 
rior the nerves, of motion, which are diftinct at their origin but foon become blended 
as we have faid. The nerves of the face offered a ftill greater puzzle ; there are 
three on each fide, one emerging from the flcull above the eyebrow, (fupraorbital or 
frontal,) another below the eye on the cheek, (infraorbital,) and the third on the 
lower jaw, (inferior maxillary,) while there is another and very remarkable nerve 
which palTes through the internal ear and radiates forward over the whole of the 
forehead, face, and nofe; this is known as the ' portio dura' of the feventh nerve. 
The three nerves firft mentioned conftitute the three divifions of the fifth pair or 
trigeminus nerve ; a nerve which, like the fpinal nerves, arifes by two roots ; one of 

1 12 

Thomas Mayo and William Mayo, M.A. 

thefe has a ganglion and is a fenfitive nerve fupplying, as it is now well known, the 
fenfation of the head and face ; the fifth nerve has another fmall portion which cor- 
refponds with the anterior root of the fpinal nerve and is diftributed folely to the 
mufcles of maftication. Now the firft clear and emphatic announcement of the 
function of thefe nerves of the face was made by Herbert Mayo, in No. I. of his 
Commentaries, dated Auguft, 1822, page 112. 'I infer,' he fays, 'from the pre- 
ceding experiments, that in the afs the portio dura is a fimple nerve of voluntary 
motion ; and that the frontal, infraorbital, and inferior maxillary are nerves of fenfa- 
tion only.' 

" Sir Charles Bell up to this time held that the three divifions of the fifth or trige- 
minus nerve, namely frontal, infraorbital, and inferior maxillary are ' mufcular 
nerves, ordering the voluntary movements of the frame ; that they are all exquifitely 
fenfible and the fource of the common fenfibility of the body.' On the other hand 
that the portio dura with others are ' refpiratory nerves,' that is to fay, * they con- 
ned: the internal organs of refpiration with the fenfibilities of remote parts, and with 
the refpiratory mufcles, and are diftinguifhed from thofe of which we have been 
fpeaking by many circumftances.' With reference to Sir C. Bell's memoirs pub- 
lifhed in the Philofophical Tranfaclions for 1821 and 1822, 'his main point,' fays 
Dr. Whewell, ' is that certain nerves are nerves of fenfation and volition, and that 
certain others are refpiratory nerves. This refpiratory fyftem of nerves, faid Bell, 
is fuperadded to that of mere feeling and agency.' 

" Neverthelefs we foon find, namely in June, 1823 (fee Phil. Trans. 1821, 1822, 
and 1 823), Bell abandoning his recently expreffed views, and claiming for himfelf the 
There- difcovery which Mayo in Auguft, 1822, afTerted as his own. Great are the bitter- 
troverfy "" nefs and eagernefs with which rival phyfiologifts contend for the honour of priority 
in refearch or experiment and the tranfmiffion of their names in the annals of fcience. 
Bell was a man Angularly genial and popular, he had been working hard at the 
nerves for years, propounding various theories which time has obliterated. No doubt 
he came very near the truth in his experiments on the afs, and it may have been 
deeply mortifying to find the laft glimmer of uncertainty cleared away by a younger 
man who repeated Bell's experiments and deduced conclufions from them which he 
had been unable to fee. 1 Mayo was a man of clearer and acuter intellect than Bell, 
but Bell's claims were backed by a large circle of friends, amongft whom were the 
Edinburgh Reviewers. Dr. Whewell in his Hiftory of the Inductive Sciences, 
vol. hi., page 425, had coupled Mayo's name with Bell's as author of difcoveries in 

1 Mayo, as has already been mentioned, was a pupil of Sir Charles Bell for four years ending in 
1815. Up to this point, he fays, he was familiar with Bell's refearches. "After this he was not in 
any way of knowing, and did not know anything whatever of the nature of Sir Charles Bell's relcarches 
except through his publifhed writings." (" The Nervous Syltem and its Functions," 1842, page 37.) 

Thomas Mayo and William Mayo, M.A. 1 1 3 

the nervous fyftem ; for this he was attacked by the Edinburgh Review, which 
repudiated Mayo's claim, and accufed Whewell of unfairnefs towards Bell. This 
attack led Whewell to ftudy the whole fubject ' ab initio,' and he fummed up his 
judgment on the whole cafe in a remarkable letter to the Editor of the London 
Medical Gazette, dated Dec. i ith, 1 837. In this he reaffirms the view that we have 
given above of Mayo's clear enunciation in Auguft, 1822, of the purely fenfitive 
action of the three nerves of the face and of the purely motor character of the portio 
dura. At the fame time he beftows a warm and deferved eulogy on Sir Charles Bell's 
refearches and fhows that he very narrowly miffed the entire truth. ' No injuftice,' 
fays Dr. Whewell, ' was committed by joining Mr. Mayo's name to that of Sir C. 
Bell as I did. I mould defcribe the difcovery as having been made by Sir Charles fummed 
Bell, Mr. Mayo, and Mr. Magendie ; the two latter phyfiologifts having corrected whcLeii! 
and completed the refearches of the former.' 

" The writer of thefe pages has carefully read through Sir Charles Bell's memoir 
on the Nerves of the Face, publifhed in the Philofophical Tranfactions for 182 1, and 
compared it with Mayo's Anatomical Commentaries, 1822, and his judgment is that 
Mayo was the firft in enunciating the pofitive doctrine that the portio dura is the 
nerve of voluntary motion for the face, and the fifth nerve, the nerve of common 
fenfation to the fame. It is true there are certain paffages in Sir Charles Bell's 
treatife in 1821 which make it difficult to conceive how he could have miffed the 
truth, whilft there are other paffages which fhow pofitively that he did mifs it. 
Meanwhile, Mayo's ftatement and claim in 1822 were clear, precife, and unmif- 

" When the Medical School was eftablifhed at King's College, London, Herbert 
Mayo was appointed its firft Profeffor of Anatomy and Phyfiology. While he held 
this office he feemed to have obtained a folid pofition which brought all the higher 
honours and emoluments of the profeffion within his grafp. His maftery of the Herbert 
anatomy of the nervous fyftem, as evinced by his admirable plates and his Com- J^J^ of 
mentaries, was undifputed fave by the phrenologifts. His clear and comprehenfive anatom y» 
' Phyfiology ' was in every ftudent's hand ; his c Pathology ' fhowed that his 
infight into difeafed ftructure was as profound as his knowledge of the healthy. He 
was an admirable furgeon and held a pofition at Middlefex Hofpital which enabled 
him to fhow his fkill to the world. He was an admirable operator, and if he was fm-gicai 
confidered to have a fault it was that he was rather too fond of exhibiting his opera- 
tive fkill when milder meafures would have fufficed. For example he amputated the 
thigh of a girl at the hip joint for neuralgia. As a teacher he was admirable, bring- and excei- 
ing forward the leading facts or doctrines without fuperfluous detail, and illuftrating £%££* 
them with impromptu drawings on the black-board in which he fhowed great power 
as a draughtfman. He was an accomplifhed fcholar, profoundly verfed in the 
beft Englifh literature and hiftory, of a peculiarly quaint and pithy ftyle of converfa-

tion, and he had a great power of attaching the ftudents to him, which is one of 
the higheft praifes that can be accorded to any profeffor. 

" The writer of this memorandum began his medical ftudies at King's College in 
October, 1834, in which year Mayo gave the introductory lecture to the Seffion, 
a brilliant difcourfe in which the orator unfolded to his delighted hearers the myfteries 
of the then little known facts which fhow that all living things are linked together in

a kind of unity and continuity, and that the higheft animals m their embryonic 
period pafs through ftages and transformations refembling thofe ftructures which are 
permanent in the lower animals. During that portion of his lecture which related 
to the nervous fyftem the front bench of the theatre contained many veteran 
practitioners, amongft whom his brother, Dr. Thomas Mayo, fince Prefident of the 

Thomas Mayo and William Mayo, M.A. 115 

Royal College of Phyficians, was a conftant attendant. If eve*r a man feemed to 
have his foot firmly planted on the ladder, that man was Herbert Mayo, and it is 
fad to have to relate how his pofition was loft, his health fhattered, his practice 
failed, till he retired to the banks of the Rhine, and died in exile. 

" Firft amongft his misfortunes was a certain inftability of mind ; he could not Rivalry 
make up his mind to take his fide and ftick to it. King's College, London, as is Kings and 
well known, was founded by Church people in order to counterbalance the fuppofed colleges.'' 
influence of the lately eftablifhed London Univerfity, whofe principles did not include 
religious teaching. King's College on the contrary took for its motto, ' Sancte et 
fapienter,' and aimed at training its alumni in the paths of faith and difcipline. But 
like many other new and very large inftitutions King's College was not at firft fuc- 
cefsful, fo far as its medical fchool was concerned. The College fyftem was denounced, 
and its Profeflbrs held up to fpecial ridicule by the Lancet, a journal which at that 
time was fuppofed to take a radical view of medical affairs, and which employed all 
its battery of fcurrility againft the Profeflbrs of the College. The character of the 
oppofition may be gathered from the fact that nicknames formed one of the mod 
important weapons againft the profeflbrs, and that Mayo was perfiftently called the 
' Middlefex Owl.' Meanwhile the medical fchool at the Univerfity of London, 
under its free-thinking fyftem as it was then thought, was more popular and lucrative, 
and we muft record with a blufti the fact that Mayo, tempted by the profpect of a 
rife in the profeflion, had the incredible want of wifdom and good tafte to apply for 
a vacant profeflbrfhip at Univerfity College. This falfe ftep naturally exafperated his Herbert 
colleagues at King's College, who unanimoufly called on him to refign. I need hardly dresfrom 
fay that the Univerfity College people only laughed at him. After this he fucceeded cdfcge 
in founding a fmall medical fchool at the Middlefex Hofpital, which from fmall 
beginnings has become a highly refpectable fchool of great practical reputation. Soon 
after this he became affected by gradually increafing rheumatic gout, which reduced Hii hedth 
him to a ftate of the utmoft helpleflhefs, and he left his large houfe at 19 George St., 
Hanover Square, for a lodging in St. James Place. 

" It is painful to have to relate as part of the cafe that Mayo threw himfelf into 
the hands of the mefmerifts. His Philofophy of Living is a little gem of a book, 
witty, quaint, and fhowing great knowledge of what may be called the philofophy of 
common life and all that minifters to its enjoyment. His fubfequent works feem 
written with painful effort." 1

graphy " tells us that "About the time when public attention was firft directed to 
hydropathy Mayo was debarred from profefTional exertion by fevere chronic rheu- 
matifm. Having tried without benefit the ufual methods of treatment, he went to 
Germany, and placed himfelf under the care of a hydropathic practitioner. From 
him he ftates he obtained relief, although during the reft of his life he continued 
crippled by anchylofis of the joints. He fubfequently became part proprietor and 
phyfician in a hydropathic eftablifhment at Boppart, and afterwards at Bad-Weilbach 
near Mayence." It is added in a notice in the " Medical Times," vol. xxvi., page 
226, that " Although he practifed hydropathy he only ufed it as one means of cure, 
and not as the fole remedy for the difeafe." Sir Charles Scudamore, in his work 
entitled, " A Medical Vifit to Grafenfberg in 1 843, for the purpofe of investigating 
the merits of the Water-cure Treatment," fays, " I was happy in the opportunity of 
meeting with my friend Mr. Mayo, whom I had attended occafionally in London, 
when fufFering moft feverely from chronic rheumatifm. I was extremely gratified 
to find him in a fatisfaclory ftate of improvement." 

Herbert Mayo died at Bad-Weilbach, 15th Auguft, 1852, from mortification of 
the arm confequent upon paralyfis. His portrait has been painted by J. Lonfdale, 
from which a mezzotinto engraving has been made by David Lucas, and a copy may

and not content with difcharging the routine of duty which his office required, he 
devoted himfelf with great earneftnefs to the advancement of their education, before 
any idea of making a provifion for anything of the kind had entered the thoughts 
of the vifiting juftices. For this he received the thanks of the magiftrates in Quarter 
Seffions. The court in 1859 made the following order, " That the Court do put on 
record its opinion that the County is under great obligation to the Revd. Mr. Mayo 
for gratuitoufly undertaking and ably difcharging the onerous duties in connection 
with the inftruction of the prifoners confined in the County Gaol." To the prifoners 
on their difcharge it was his cuftom to give a copy of the New Teftament, and on 
many occafions pecuniary afliftance. He often remarked that the happieft days of 
his life were fpent within the precincts of the prifon, and that he never experienced 
the flighteft difrefpect from any of the criminals, though he was daily alone in a 
room with a clafs of them around him. During all thefe years he never had a 
day's illnefs, and his upright figure, as he walked through the Clofe from his houfe 
to Fifherton, a diftance of a mile-and-a-half, twice daily, with the utmofl punctuality 
and regularity at eight o'clock in the morning, and again later in the day, was as 
true an indication of the hour as the found of the Cathedral Clock. In addition to 
thefe duties he gave his fervices gratuitoufly for many years as chaplain to the Salif- 
bury Penitentiary, and when he refigned that poft the committee were compelled to 
provide a falary for his fucceflbr. 
nd finally On 20th April, 1 865, he was prefented to the Rectory of Folke, Dorfet, by the 

Hon. and Rev. Canon Gordon, it being his turn to prefent to this chapter living, 
and was inftituted 6th June, inducted 23rd June, and went into refidence 21ft July.

with deafnefs and other ailments. In 1876 he went to refide with his fon at Long 
Burton, but continued to take part in the duties of his parifhes, in which he was 
aflifted by a curate, until within fix months of his deceafe. He parted quietly away

He was a man of wonderful energy and determination, and worked without a 
thought of fparing himfelf, or of feeking any reward for his labour. Self-denial was 
the charadleriftic principle of his life. His great recreation was found in his garden, 
of which he was a fkilful cultivator, and he was an excellent practical carpenter and
